    1. Just loved this.I used to avoid short stories but for some reason I've read a few books full of them lately. I usually want more (and I SO do with these) and I feel a little let down. Maud Casey has a wonderful writing style, descriptive, rich characters, just the right amount of metaphors. She writes intelligently without insulting intelligence, but at the same time it's not pretentious. Having read The Shape of Things to Come I recognized one of the stories -- it may have been the first chapte [...]


    2. Very smart, compelling stories, with plenty of "Oh, Wow" moments throughout. I had a major life revelation after reading the first story in this collection, "Seaworthy." There aren't many fiction writers who pack that kind of punch. I am definitely a Maud Casey fan now, and look forward to reading much more of her fiction.


    3. oops. i would not recommend reading all of casey all at once. reading the short stories after the shape of things to come, i quickly became saturated with something that felt like, look how weird i am and what strange lovely revelations i have over and over again. something forced or failing, i can't tell.


    4. These stories are bleak, somewhat depressing and very very well written. All stories are about some sort of loss, they left me feeling incomplete and yuk.
